FORTY-FIVE TO NOTHING!
Last Saturday's Game Between
Carolina and Oak Ridge Results
in a Walkover for Carolina.
The Carolina-Oak Ridge foot
ball game Saturday was not so
much a glorious victory for Caro
lina as it was for Oak Ridge a piti
able defeat. Carolina gained near
ly nine hundred yards, while Oak
Ridge did not gain a yard. The
Varsity so completely outclassed
the visitors that there was no good
game from a practical point of view.
No doubt, however, the students
were pleased to see the Varsity ex
ecute her plays so effectively.
The two good tackles, however,
that were made by Oak Ridge men
were things that everybody was
glad to see; and if some other re
markable thing had been done by
Oak Ridge, everybody would have
been still more pleased. That
might'have made the Varsity feel
more at liberty to increase her score
As it was the ball was in play
only 20 minutes, and hi that time
Carolina made 45 and Oak Ridge 0.
In a ; few. words the ganie was
something like this: Varsity'squar
ter would call the signals; then
there would be a few rushes,, and
next some Varsity man. after a lit
tle dodging, would chase down the
gridiron for a touch down. In de
tail, however, the game is somewhat
harder to describe, it being a series
of such long runs that it is hard to
use specific language and preserve
accuracy. The following report is
as correct as possible.

Dr. Venable expressed the desire
that the Athletic Association do
this much for the Scrubs and has
appointed Coach Olcott and Mana

carry eighteen men as usual, and
from the scrubs remaining, fifteen
of the most faithful ones will be
given their railroad fare.
This is gratifying to the whole
student body as to the scrub play

Varsity gets its strength. A strong
